Phuket Weather in September

What is the weather like in Phuket in September

The weather in Phuket in September is at its wettest. As much as 419.1mm of rain (the highest amount of the year) is dropped over 19 days (the highest number of the year). This does, of course, mean that there are still some sunny days and the rain will generally fall only in short showers, with sunny periods between them.

As a result of all that rain, humidity is at its peak of 77%. All that rain also brings down the average temperature to its lowest level of 27.3°C (81.1°F), with water temperatures also dropping to about the same level. Seas are rough and the winds from the west are strong and frequent, making boat tours impractical and uncomfortable. On the bright side, the tourist crowds are at their smallest, prices for flights and hotels are at their lowest – great for bargain hunters looking for five-star accommodation at rock-bottom prices.

Things to Do in Phuket in September

Por Tor Festival in Phuket Town

Por Tor or the 'Hungry Ghost' festival is an important merit-making event for the ethnic Chinese. Special food, flowers and candles are offered to ancestors on altars. Other offerings are made to 'feed the ghosts without relatives' that are said to have been released from hell for the month.

Experience this beautiful event for yourself at any Chinese Shrine on the island or head to Seng Tek Bel Shrine on Phuket Road and the fresh market on Ranong Road to enjoy two of the biggest Hungry Ghost celebrations in Phuket.

  • Location: Seng Tek Bel Shrine, next to Bann Bang Neow School on Phuket Road and Phuket Town Fresh Market on Ranong Road

Phang Nga Bay

A distinctive feature of Phang Nga Bay are the sheer limestone karsts that jut vertically out of the emerald-green water.  James Bond Island and Koh Panyee are just two of the more famous spots in this bay. By far the best means of enjoying the spectacular scenery, with only brief encounters with the tourist crowds at James Bond and Koh Panyee, is to take one of the boat trips from the northern end of Phuket.

A leisurely day trip cruising through the dramatic limestone islands, occasionally stopping to enjoy quiet beaches, is far more rewarding than the standard bus-boat tour.

Old Phuket Houses

A must-do in Phuket is a walk in the old part of Phuket City, around Thalang, Dibuk and Krabi roads. The beautiful architecture along these roads will take you back to the charm of a century ago. According to Pranee Sakulpitpatana, a lecturer at Phuket Rajabhat University and one of the island’s premier historians, the architecture is a reflection of European influence on the island. Europeans, including the Portuguese and the British, had been interested in Phuket’s tin wealth since the 16th century.

  • Opening Hours: Daily from 09:00 – 17:00
  • Location: 28 Krabi Road, Phuket Old Town
  • Address: 20 Thalang Road, Phuket Old Town
